    Looking For IRC Dedicated server Help!!

    Ok here are the constraints,

    Needs to be on some sort of Tier 1 BW.

    Something in California, Chicago, or Newyork For the phsyical location would be nice. No Tampa, Dallas a maybe but trying to spread out the infastructure.

    The server needs to have this or better.
    512 mb ram +
    1000 gb + BW

    No need for any control panels, just straight red hat is fine.

    Here are a list of companies that wont do ircd or are located in the wrong location.

    Layered Tech (disapointed really wanted to buy from them)
    Hivevelocity
    Ev1 (Already have 2 servers there)
    Sagonet
    ezzi.net


    I was looking @ Unitedcolo.com justdedicated.com and 1and1.com

    Un mettered 10mbs is prefered, but then again i dont want crappy bw.

    looking to spend about 70$ give or take $10

    Thanks!

    Try Staminus.net in California, or GigEServers.com or SteadfastNetworks.com in Chicago.

    Staminus.net Sold out of everyting in my price range
    GigEServers.com Way too exspensive though they are on some NICE bandwidth

    steadfast seems nice but they offer an IRC dedicated hosting service which is like 150$ a month =/

    And ive been on hold with 1&1 forever and they have the WORST music ever

    1and1.com permits the use of IRC and their prices can hardly be beat. Their a good choice if you can handle yourself on a Linux box but don't count on fanatical support.

    All the "hold" music is horrible

    I heard 1&1 was really horrible when it comes to support so you may want to investigate.

    Honestly i was trying to figure out where there data center is located 1&1 music was soooo bad its going to make me not purchase from them. Also heard over crowding was a problem.

    FDCservers.net had a nice 5 mb unmettered for 69 a month on Cognet BW

    Blacklotus has a 94$ a month deal for 2000gb of bw.

    thouse Sssinc-Hosting.com has IRCDs cheap, im just worried if im on a network with a buncha other IRCDs is DDos going to be rampent

    Honestly in that price range you are not going to find a stable network for IRC, you could try managed.com they have irc dedicated in that price range but you wont really have a very stable network. Almost the same with any other provider in that range.

    To get a decent reliable network you are looking around 150us at least.

    There's no reason to be upset by that fact. Who the **ck wants to host with those scumbags?

    To the OP all our clients are thoroughly screened so you need not worry about such. Besides the fact the datacenter runs nine edge routers for ddos firewalling.

    In any case good luck in your hunt for an IRC allowed dedicated server hopefully you won't have much trouble in your search.

    Abovenet has been having router issues in Chicago, so FDC has been having a rough couple weeks.

    Staminus is your best bet, Matt should have some more cheapo's in the next couple days i thought i heard.

    i picked up a really cheap box from nexpoint, which is in virginia, and they lemme put a IRCd there. The network has been amazing, supports been nice and fast, and really well priced (only $50 for my box, a cheapo celly 1Ghz).

    Couple things to note with your search. I would highly suggest you do a search on 1and1 as there are quite a few stories on them. Also you would need to get very lucky to find a server in the $70-$80 price range which is IRC allowed as not many providers offer IRC bargain servers anymore (most companies have decided to phase them out). However you may find something if you search enough.

    In any case definitely research is prudent on this.

    Most who run irc networks typically either go with several ircd shell accounts and/or a dedicated server if they have more funds available. Just my experience thus far on this. Many companies are smart and host servers in a few datacenters to allow clients to have ircd leafs on separate networks so in case of one facility flapping then the other leafs/hubs would take on load of the network.

    In any case if you are on a limited budget it may be wise to just look into some reliable shell providers at least initially.

    Wish you the best on this in any case.

    Not trying to hijack the thread, but that is a bunch of boloney, since we are on the SAME routers connecting to abovenet as FDC in chicago, and we have had 0 downtime in this time period of a couple of weeks you refer too.

    So NO abovenet is not the one having problems, just Like Level3 wasnt the one having problems when they switched from Yipes to abovenet for IRC in the beginning of the month.

    As shown by dnsstuff.com dedicatedplace.com is actually a LayeredTech reseller more then likely (their plans seem about right as well as the fact that their IP address resolves and shows up as an IP owned by LT) IP Whois

    thus UAE46 as they would be bound by the same TOS/AUP as LayeredTech uses then you will probably be getting the same no irc allowed response.

    In any case as always best of luck in your search.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your interest but unfortunately, IRC / IRCD is forbidden to our Network. It is LT's policy and we need to be strict on this also.

    Regards,

    gige sounds nice but its a bit too expensive


    Does it matter when a host says Free inbound or out bound? i mean i assume @ 1 terabyte and 2 terabytes that its really mute point?

    Well you got damn lucky.. Had to pull a leaf out of FDC and get it elsewhere due to the spontaneous ping outs affiliated with FDC networks.. I'd never recommend them for any sort of stable service.. Though their uptime has greatly improved as of late - A while ago it was quite a different story..

    That simply means if you get ddos and it gets past their firewalls (which it really should not get past the datacenter's firewalls obviously) you would not be billed for it basically. Mind you in many cases that is just window dressing and if the datacenter allows IRC they normally wouldn't be billing you for that traffic anyhow (at least from what I have been told).

    from what im reviewing above and my personal experience my two cents goes with 1and1 or fdcservers.net for your budget but remeber and expect to be your own tech suppor team

    Well then you would know better than me

    I'm only going by what I was told by Petr, and have read in many irc channels.

    Would be a great choice

    For the west coast they provide some crazy-*** low pings, like 30 ms from Victoria, BC Their network is solid, and has outstanding filtering so even though they have a lot of IRCd's, you'd never notice a dDoS. These days matt can filter upwards of 1.5Gbit worth of dDoS without nullroutes. Within the next two months he's bringing in a few more gige lines, bringing in even more filtering

    Odd that they would offer you IRC, when they have a policy stating NO IRC, and that any sort of dDOS to their network will not be tolerated o_O

    And yet they clearly state in their AUP they do not permit IRC/high risk hosting? Something doesn't quite jive on that one.

    Maybe they don't allow linked servers. But if they don't, then that doesn't help you either, since you have a network, not a single box.

    Perhaps it's an auto reply.

    I would personally recommend looking into a IRC friendly VPS solution for a medium network.

    If you would like to run a smaller network you might be satisfied with a shared IRCd account.

    Otherwise, Staminus would be your best choice.

    Just have some patience and wait for server stock or specials.
